You know something that really pisses me off?

People who say “Well it’s just another culture” in response to people saying things that imply that a woman’s rape is her own fault. It makes me so angry when people say that in defense of parents who act like it’s their daughters fault for being attacked, because, after all, she was being so bold as to FLIRT with boys. Or say that to defend people who treat her as if her being a flirt makes her nothing more than a slut.

People seem to think that saying “Well it’s just a part of their culture” justifies it.

Well it doesn’t.

Because there is one thing they are forgetting.

Just because something is part of a culture, that doesn’t make it right.
